What are the odds that the swine flu virus, human flu virus and bird flu virus all got together in Mexico and decided to have a party! I'm not really up on my genetic manipulation of viruses but I just would like to know how likely that would be. Any biologists out there? Thanks. P.S. Mexico just closed it's doors but for essential services for the next five days. Not a global pandemic yet. The CDC has raised the alert to one notch below Global Pandemic. This is getting worrisome. P.S.S. Calderon says 6-7 percent death rate. world wide, that would be; 420,000,000. About 20,000,000 in this country.
